Michigan Drupal Meetups and Camps are Back in Session

Posted By Shane Sevo on Thursday, January 15, 2015 - 11:25

Commercial Progression has a long history of supporting the Michigan Drupal development community.  We believe it is important to have regular opportunities for our community to come together, share information, and encourage the open source Drupal project.

Michigan Drupal Meetup

The December 2014 Michigan Drupal Meetup marked a long awaited return of regular meetups to our community.  Over 30 local Drupal developers and designers came out to the event hosted at Ann Arbor Spark for an opportunity to mingle, talk Drupal, and learn from others in the community.

Our own, Brad Czerniak, presented on extending the webform module to do unconventional things, such as:

  • Allow site users to make quizzes easily

  • Inject field content so it inter-mingles with form components

  • Make form fields trigger videos, and other uses of the 'extra' array

  • Create Views showing submission values from more than one form

December Meetup Video Recording Online

Brad’s presentation was captured at the event and is now available for viewing online at the Commercial Progression youtube channel.

We are already working to schedule our next Michigan Drupal Meetup for February 2015. Register now on our Meetup for all the details as they develop.  Future meetups will be recorded and rebroadcasted via our youtube channel playlist.
